Case Reports

Case: A 61-year-old man presented with a 5-year history of left hip pain and a 6-month history of left groin swelling associated with hypoesthesia and proximal muscle weakness. Radiograph of the left hip showed degenerative joint disease. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a large, anteriorly displaced paralabral cyst of the left hip joint. Neurophysiologic studies were corroborative of left femoral mononeuropathy. Complete excision of the cyst along with total hip replacement were performed. At 4-year follow-up, there was complete remission with resolution of symptoms.

Conclusions: Our experience emphasizes the importance of identifying and addressing the underlying primary pathologic disease for a satisfactory functional outcome.
